The Osler Institute

Excellence in Continuing Medical Education

Obstetrics and Gynecology

“…I believe it is a ‘great course’”  *  “I feel [the course] helped me pass.”  *

The Osler Institute has over thirty years of experience in preparing physicians for their board examinations. We can help you today.
A survey of Osler participants shows significantly higher pass rates for Osler students compared with those who did not take our course.
The difference in pass rates is difficult to explain away by self-selection in attendance over-representing those who would have passed without taking the Osler course.

“Osler gives … unfair advantage” said a Board Trustee. “He’s wrong and right,” reported an Osler participant who heard the trustee’s comment. “The course does give candidates an advantage – but it’s not unfair.” This student had failed his boards before taking the Osler course but told us that he passed easily after doing the course. “This time didn’t even feel like an exam. It was like having a discussion with a colleague.”

The Osler course can work for you too.

This comprehensive review is designed as to help you pass your Obstetrics and Gynecology board exams as well as to update your clinical knowledge and, thus, is useful to practicing physicians as well as senior trainees.  The 5-day didactic course includes lectures that review the entire field of Obstetrics and Gynecology with emphasis on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care, incorporating new concepts, guidelines and treatments. In addition to the lectures, the course includes a searchable e-syllabus (containing PDFs of all PowerPoint presentations), Question and Answer sessions, and a self-guided picture room with question sets.  Many of our previous participants found the course provided them with improved diagnostic and testing strategies, a better understanding of all major relevant disease entities,  and helped them recognize specific areas of knowledge weakness for self-study.
